Dear Parents and Caregivers,

I would like to welcome all of our new families to the Jefferson Community. Our school community is a warm and nurturing environment. We strive to challenge our children to reach their full potential, academically and socially/emotionally. We have many community events supported and led by our PTA and our faculty. Throughout the school year, children have a variety of opportunities to dance, sing, perform and participate in positive, physical activities.  One of our most popular programs is our early morning intramural sports program. In the fall and spring, we offer soccer. In the winter, we offer basketball. We send a monthly note home to keep families informed of school events and activities. We also post information about our programs on our school website, jefferson.nred.org .

In addition, school information is also shared through automated calls and email blasts. It is important that we always have your most up to date contact information.  Please inform the main office if your contact information has changed.

Together, we will accept the diversity of all children, taking them forward on their educational journeys to reach their fullest potential, and encouraging their curiosity so they become successful lifelong learners.

Together, we will foster partnerships with the goal of encouraging student achievement by building on students' strengths and supporting their social and emotional development.

Together, we will continue to promote and enhance the educational development of every member (staff, students and parents) of the Jefferson Community.
